You’d think that with being prime minister (& having also been president between 2003-2014), his main concern would be running the country properly & making it a good place to live/work for all Turkish citizens regardless of their faith (or lack of).
If he was the grand mufti or grand ayatollah or some other religious leader then fair enough he’d have every right to be more concerned about Islam than anything else, but when you’re a major political figure in the government, your main concern shouldn’t be religion, it should be the economy, or healthcare, or education, or the development of infrastructure, or civil rights, or the environment, or the rights of minorities.
Imagine if someone from a religious minority like an Armenian Christian or a Turkish Jew rose to a prominent position within the government, & they said their main concern was Christianity or Judaism, that wouldn’t be right at all & neither should it be right for a high-ranking government official from the majority religion to be mainly concerned with their sect.
People being more loyal to their sect than their country or fellow compatriots lead to the 15-year-long Lebanese civil war, it has contributed to the wide sectarian differences in the Syrian civil war, it has lead to a lot of the violence & instability in Iraq, & overall it fuels religious fundamentalism & the persecution/oppression of minorities.
